does the ans stormtrooper match my le axe

i have a white axe and im looking at getting rid of my dye ul barrels and getting a freak kit and im wondering if the storm trooper anno on the barrel will look close to the white axe finish? i know the axe has a high gloss finish and im hoping the white barrel will be close enough to not look horrible
i was looking at a dust red back and the storm trooper front

Here is what I'd do....

There is a guy from Bever Falls, Pa on here that machines stock barrels to accept freak inserts. If you have a white barrel, have someone machine out the stock white barrel to accept freak inserts and use that so it matches.

Nobody does the Mini/Axe stock barrels due to the outer shape and how thin the barrels are. Your best bet is to buy a used barrel if your strapped for cash.

I have seen a few Dye boomsticks that are glossy white in color...might be the best match for your marker. However, I wouldn't mess with the stock barrel. Just save up and get a deadlywinds with freak...Done

How is the color holding on your limited edition. I picked one up a few months ago as a backup gun and it hasn't seen really any hard use and already the finish is chipping in several areas

I can second that, it's dust white.

The MacDev 2pc barrels in white match it perfect.
